2014 - What's it Gonna Be
1) Stretch past my self-imposed limits and boundaries - This means both physically and mentally. Yesterday I started that by facing my fear of heights and hiking to the top of Stone Mountain. If you have a fear of heights you know it is not the ascent, it is the idea of the descent from there. As much as I told my husband and myself I was fine going only 3/4 of the way up; he helped me and I made myself continue to the top. I made it down without falling off the face of the mountain. I hope to work on this in different areas of my life.
2) Live my priorities - I have good intentions to say no to things that take me away from what is important and focus on things that matter but I don't always succeed. I am going to start asking myself, is this in line with what I value, before I let someone convince or guilt me into doing something.
3) Run Everyday that I am able - That means if I am not injured or sick, I run. Even just a mile. Hoping to crack the 1200 mile year this year. No excuses like work or I am tired. I have a treadmill, new Bluetooth Ear Buds, plenty of shoes, I mean come on. No wussing out this year.
4) Practice gratitude - It is an act. Whenever I think why me? or Why this or that? I need to take a minute and find something I am grateful for. I think I will start ending my blog with something I am grateful for each entry. Then at least I will be consciously focusing on it a couple of times a week.
I think these are good goals for me this year. They may not be too specific but I think they are good guiding principles.
Today I am grateful for the roof over my head since it is raining and cold outside.
Hope you attain your goals this year!
